Death of Presidents.
George Washington died at Mount Ver

68th year of his age. Death came sud

John Adams came to " the end of liv
ing " at his residence in Quincy, Mass., on
the 4th of July, 1826, realizing what day
it was and rejoicing in it. He gradually
and quietly expired at the patriarchal age
of four score years and ten.
Thomas Jefferson,.by an 'extraordinary
coincidence, breathed his last it -Monti

compatriot, Adams, died—the jubilee of
American Independence. He had reached
the see of 83 years.

Col. in the Continental army. He particular

and the period, of his wise and peaceful
administration was chaacterized .as " the
era of good feeling."

near Nashville, on the Sib of June, 1845,
in his 79th year. He must have been a
great man, indeed, who could cluster the
affections of a whole people around him
as this distinguished patriot and soldier
did. His popularity had no parallel:but
that of Washington.
Martin Van Buren died at his birth
place, Kinderhook, Columbia county, N.
Y., on the 24th of July, 1862, in his 80th
year. His administration, from 1837 to
1841. was a period marked by great finan

was charged by his political opponents up
on the pclicy.he pursued in managing the
public finances through the agefiey of the
independent treasury. He failed of re•

on account of his opposition to the annex :

of this and a consultation bad. As all'the
arrangements had been made for that day
and everything was then ready, they con

hint that it would look strange and sound,
'odd if not Puritanic for him to refuse com

Hundreds of black laborers have flocked
into our cities from the plantatiOns, and,
have idled through this streets, from day
to day, without any ostensible means of
support. They have many of them abjured
all regular employment and are seeking
for little jobs, which will occupy them for
an hour or two or a day or two. A great
fellow, with the brawn of a Hercules, will
start a little grocery store on a peck of
potatoes and a chicken. Two or three
sympathizing friends will always be found
by the side of the proprietor, as he sits in
the street,. watching his store atld waiting
for custom. Perhaps they are speculators,
watching the variations of the market ;
perhaps they are the clerks of the estab

of negroes lying asleep around a fire in a

Sutherland and Capt. Richardson, of the
late rebel army, who showed great respect
to the family of their chief, and are de
scribed as gentlemanly men, (ie. Owing
to the sudden fall to nothing of the rebel
paper money the family found themselves
five thousand dollars lees in funds than
they expected to be, and were in cense

so much so that they had to leave a house
where the charge for living was small, to
go into' -another One where it was still
smaller. Mrs. Howell is a fine old woman
